“Best Of” Fab Food List…

12 Feb

Don’t read this post if you are hungry!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

So I found this blog post and thought it was an interesting concept of doing the “best of” for different foods.  Apparently the awesome blogger got the idea from watching The Best Food I Ever Ate from the Food Network.  Now I haven’t watched this show before, but time to TIVO it and see what it is all about!  We love food and watching food shows {our favorite being Food vs. Man}.  We really love to eat {hence forth with the diet} and trying new places–but at times we do tend to go back to our favorites.  Some of my favorite meals have been a one time deal and I can’t for the life of me figure out what the name of what the resturants are so this list below may be a little skewed–just by my apparent memory loss!! {which has been killing me during this entire post!}

For instance–

     -My good friend Tbear and I ate at this hole in the wall italian resturant when she first moved to New York City and it was close to Magnolia Bakery and the wife of the owner was so amazing.  The italian food was to die for, the wine went down really easy and the atmosphere let us linger for hours as we chatted away.

     -My other good friend Sbear took us to a genuine California Mexican resturant and I can’t figure out what the name of it is but seriously the Mexican was to.die.for. We weren’t in California for long but I believe I ate there twice…maybe three times.  Everything was so cheesy and delicious!  {if I was patient enough I could email her and get a response so I am posting on the interwebs for her to respond..haha}

   -We went out with a couple in North End Boston for some great Italian once again {i heart Italian food although I picked the Olive Garden as my favorite–oops!}. This food was melt in your mouth good and the atmosphere was just as fabulous.  We had to wait a bit so we just went next door and had a drink while we wait.  We love Boston and their food!

   -On our roadtrip we stopped in Kansas and had some BBQ {well the boys did, I had chicken}. And the boys talked about it the whole way in driving to California so I am guessing it would win out over the BBQ that I had picked, but once again I have no clue what the name of it was. 

  -On a girls weekend with KBear and LBear we ate our desserts from a supermarket down from the Empire State Building. Um yea totally amazing {especially watching sex& the city} but would I have any clue what that supermarket was called with the delicious array of desserts? nope. 

  -There are endless places that my husband and I have tried and we were left feeling amazed by the food, but as the years pass the food memories stay with me, but of course not the names.  Like this Shrimp Fra Diavlo that I absolutely love, but can’t remember where I had it…dang it!

So I think I need to start jotting down more my favorites as I eat my way through life and try new resturants and meals that I experience so I can do a better job with this list. Without further ado here is my list of the The Best Foods I Have Ever Eaten…..ENJOY!

    The name of the Mexican restaurant is Mexico Lindo. We loooove that place and cant wait for you and Steve to visit again, so we can all go together. Followed by Frozos of course.

    Um, have you totally forgotten about the great cuisine from Indiana, PA? That could be a post in itself. Bobs pizza, Sheetz, 9th Street Deli, buffalo chicken salads at Murphy’s, Hoss’s…the list could go on.
